Mum sparks bomb scare to stop daughter's wedding

Melbourne, Nov 18 (ANI): A 56-year-old Russian mother told airport officials in Russia that her daughter was a suicide bomber intent on blowing up a passenger jet because the latter was flying away to marry against mum's wish.

RIA Novosti reported that police scrambled to intercept the unsuspecting bride-to-be as her plane was prevented from taking off from Moscow's Domodedovo Airport.

However, when authorities realised the tip-off was bogus they traced the anonymous call back to the woman's mother.

The lady was arrested on suspicion of making a false terror report.

"Her daughter recently fell in love with a Moroccan citizen and was planning to get married to him and move to Morocco," quoted a police spokeswoman as saying.

"The woman was against the marriage and did not want her daughter to move abroad," she added. (ANI)
